What is the availability and cost of household help, and what types of help are typically employed by expatriates?

Good and affordable. We pay our housekeeper $60 a week, and she comes two days a week and would stay nearly all day if we wanted her to. She cleans, she irons, she would do laundry if we wanted her to, she would cook if we wanted her to. - Oct 19, 2011
